City of the Living Dead
Directed by Lucio Fulci
A reporter and a psychic try to close the gates of hell before zombies invade Earth in the first of Italian gore maestro Lucio Fulci's "Gates of Hell" trilogy. After a priest guarding the gates dies, Mary and Peter learn that his death created the opportunity for the dead to rise in only a few days. Soon enough, gruesome things start happening - including the film's most famous sequence where a female victim literally pukes her guts out. If George Romero's living dead films are too tame for you, Fulci's films should satisfy all your creepy cravings. Contains violence and gore.

I loved this! Although it's from 1980, the gore remains effective and the atmosphere is genuinely creepy as it works alongside the eerie soundtrack. The bleeding from the eyes actually made me feel more uneasy than I thought it would. I found it interesting to know that coffee was spilt on the original ending print so Fulci had to make another ending with the footage he had already.
Apart from the lack of real ending this movie is classic horror at its finest.
ahh Fulci,you can always trust Fulci he never disappoints
Very good, great to watch films like this again or to discover for the first time !! Enjoy !! What about the ending ? Is it true the original negative had coffee spilled on it and he left us with this ?
I wish this would stream in the US :(
